I doubt this will be read by an actual band member of Nickelback but if by chance it actually does I'll make it worth it. I myself am a musician a very good one in fact though I haven't produced any albums quit yet. Starting with guitar at 11 years old I got bored of looking for band members and decided to do it all myself. So in the singing process I've met my match with only some of the best vocalists who ever lived and Chad. I gotta know how you make your voice so naturally grimy without screaming, I can scream so I know that's not how you do it I'm going crazy here. Can you hook it up with some tips or pointers? I feel like you croak like a frog but conditioned your voice to make it like that, or is it some insane auto-tune shit? Either way your singing technique would improve my music greatly hit me back if you can you guys rock I hope you're not done making music.

Saw the guys in Pensacola, Fl when they were travelling in a van and pulling a equipment trailer. Think I paid $10.00 for a ticket. Venue was Rosie O’Grady’s. Met the band, got autographs. While talking with Chad, he asked me my age. Told him 47. I bet Chad and the guys never expected to soar to the level of popularity they now have. Chad, if you are out there am I.

Hey Chad and other band members. You must be aware of what’s going on in your native land of Canada. I’ve been supporting your band since 2000 and was there in Edmonton for the concert of 2001. It was the best and ignited a spark in me I haven’t felt before Now that we are in the situation in Canada that I never thought possible I ask that you reignite that spark and make/write/ sing a song that inspires this nation again. You guys would be hero’s and for myself, I would have faith again. Pls consider being non partisan as we all need to heal together as one.
Much respect

I hope that the band really sees these messages. I would love to know they know the impact they have. I came across this band in the mid 2000s on a youtube video. I have several of their albums on my phone and Ipod. There was a time I was separated from my wife due to her job transferring and it took me a while to make the move too. The song Far Away was a favorite and was kind of a connection to my wife. I don't understand how someone can dislike the band. I love the fact they have songs that are softer and then when the mood hits there are some hard rocking. I love the video where they make fun of themselves being kidnapped to play a college party. The song with Chad and Avril is awesome. The song and video for lullaby is phenomenal. I hope they don't listen to the haters and continue to do what they have done and just be an awesome bad. I loved too the youtube showing them seeing the fan reactions. I know I will likely be the oldest person at their concert but would love to see them in concert near Seattle.

I was in a 6 yr abusive relationship and the songs Home & of course, What Are You Waiting For, gave me the courage to get out. There's a lot of heart in your lyrics. I love your new album Get Rollin', & for the first time in probably 20 yrs, am looking forward to going to a concert - YOURS! In Grand Rapids Michigan. You never know the impact you have unless people tell you, so just wanna let you know that you're INSPIRATIONAL. Truly. God bless you guys! (Hope the Gid part doesn't offend).
